Fabletics VIP Membership Review – December 2020

Fabletics is a monthly fitness apparel subscription co-founded by Kate Hudson. In fact, it’s one of our readers’ top picks for Best Fitness Subscription Boxes of 2020! The VIP Membership is $49.95/month and allows you to choose from outfits and sets that have been put together just for members at a discounted price.

You can shop Fabletics in two ways—you can shop the regular store, or you can sign up for their VIP membership. VIP memberships work like this:

  • Take the Fabletics quiz, which will let the company know your size, style, and fitness needs.
  • Each month, Fabletics will curate looks that match your preferences. According to the website, outfits start at $24 for new VIP members.
  • Shop those looks at 40-50% off what you’d get just paying retail, or skip the month. You have to make your decision by the 5th of the month. If you do neither, the $49.95 monthly membership fee will be saved to your account as a credit, which you can put towards other outfits later.
  • As you shop, you’ll also earn points that can be applied to accessories and other cool fitness essentials.

Put simply, this subscription won’t automatically send you monthly packages as other services do. (But they will automatically charge you if you take no action.) You have to hop into your account and either decide to add items to your card or skip it. Subscriptions can be canceled at any time, though you do have to call Fabletics customer service to do so.

VIP Membership Updates:

Recently, I received an email stating that my VIP Membership was changing…for the better. What does this mean? According to the FAQ’s on their website, they will be dropping new styles every week instead of every month, and each month, when you are charged the $49.95, you will be issued a member credit, which is redeemable for any item or outfit up to $80!

FYI, COVID-19 Update: 

Ready, Set, Ship: Our shipping times are now 100% back to normal & select retail stores have reopened, but health & safety is still our top priority. Read more here.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Fabletics VIP Membership Review – December 2020

Like I mentioned earlier, I recently received the email regarding Fabletic’s VIP membership changes. I immediately jumped onto their website for more information and found out the scoop. The FAQ portion of the website mentions that they are beginning to offer credits up to $80 because their members have vocalized wanting better deals. I am all about saving money, so this is fantastic for me. Also, they are dropping new styles every week instead of only at the first of the month, which will hopefully eliminate the crashing of their website. This month I jumped on at 5:00 a.m. and had absolutely no issues. They still had the Black Friday deals going on, so I received quite the haul this month! While shipping has been pretty decent in recent months, this month I didn’t receive my order until December 24th. Better late than never right? Check out what I received this month below.

 

Mila Cold Weather Jogger – Retail Value $74.95 / VIP Member Price $54.95

While these joggers were slightly shorter than I was expecting, I am totally in love. Made of polyester and elastane, these high-waisted comfy pants have an elastic waist and drawstring for adjustability. Each side features a pocket that is large enough to hold a cell phone. They also have a brushed interior which makes them feel a bit warmer than leggings. I find myself reaching for these more often than any other brand of leggings/joggers I have as they are not see-through, and they almost all have pockets. Comfy, stylish, and warm – perfect for an outdoor Minnesota workout sesh!

 

Jess Long-Sleeve Turtleneck Top – Retail Value $59.95 / VIP Member Price $44.95

Anyone who knows me knows I layer everything. I hate tight-fitting clothes (especially ones that show off my midriff) and will pair a jean jacket with just about everything. I do not own one single ribbed top and haven’t worn a turtleneck since I was probably 6. Why on earth did I choose this top? I’m really partial to red…So I ordered this slinky looking top, and because it looked to be a bit on the tight side, I ordered an extra-large. I was really scared when I opened the package because it looks little – with really long arms. How did it fit? Snug, but sooooo cozily! This ribbed modal and elastane fabric is incredibly soft and luxurious on my skin. While it was a little more tight-fitting than I would prefer (too many Christmas cookies could be to blame,) paired with my sherpa lined vest, I was as snug as a bug in a rug. I literally could sleep in this top. The neck is loose enough to not feel like I am being choked, and the color is just plain fantastic. I’m super glad I went out on a limb with this top!

 

Mila Medium Impact Sports Bra – Retail Value $44.95 / VIP Member Price $34.95

Because the Black Friday sales were still in effect on December 1st, I got a killer deal on all of my pieces. I just couldn’t resist grabbing the sports bra that perfectly coordinated with the turtleneck, because of my obsession with red anything! This medium impact bra felt a little more than medium impact to me, but really held everything together when I did my morning jog. I liked the mesh detailing on the back, and while I didn’t use the pocket, I appreciate the option of having somewhere to store a card or key. I am impressed with the quality of this piece and will definitely be keeping my eye out for another one to add to my collection.

 

The No Show Brief – Retail Value $11.95 / VIP Member Price $8.95

Made of polyamide and elastane, these no show underwear are just that – no show. There are no seams, just plain nothing to show through your leggings, joggers, or dress. Very impressive if you ask me. They are a bit slippery but super comfortable and extremely soft.

 

The No Show Brief – Retail Value $11.95 / VIP Member Price $8.95

To pair with my collection of black leggings, I also ordered a pair of these comfortable undies in black. I still can’t get over how weightless and soft they feel.

 

Here you can see I glammed up the outfit a bit with a headband, lipstick, and necklace because I was feeling a bit fancy. I was extremely happy with the support the bra offered, along with the fit of the underwear. While the shirt was a little tighter than I would have preferred, I am obsessed with the color and love how the high-waisted joggers feel while exercising and lounging. I feel this might just be my New Year’s Eve TV watching outfit!

And just to show how it can be layered, I added my plaid vest. Talk about comfy and cozy – I literally could live in this outfit and am actually donning it while writing up this review!

The Verdict: This month was unbelievable. I veered out of my comfort zone and found a top that I literally love, and managed to snag 2 pairs of underwear, a bra, joggers, and the shirt for a Black Friday sale price of $59.98 including tax! That totals out to be $11.99 an item which is an absolute steal. Like I have said before, I love Fabletic’s leggings and joggers. I have other brands, and you can literally see through those in bright light. These are high quality and comfortable. I am really interested to see how the new membership features pan out, and am really excited to watch new styles drop more frequently, with better value. I can’t wait to see what January has in store!

Can you still get this set if you sign up today? Possibly, as all items are still available but in limited sizes.

COUPON: Get two pairs of leggings for $24 ($99 value). No coupon needed - just use this link.

Value Breakdown: If you were to order all items separately as a VIP member, your order total would be $152.75, but because I received the Black Friday sale prices, my total was almost $100 less! Score! Check out all of our Fabletics reviews and the best 2020 workout clothing subscriptions for women and men!

While I am taking a time-out from being a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, I am currently staying at home with my 2 sweet boys! My first subscription was Julep thanks to happening upon the MSA website, and it all went downhill from there! I have subscribed to Ipsy, Boxycharm, Degustabox, Julep, Graze, Bluum, Walmart, and more because I love a good surprise! I truly am a subscription addict!
